The USA’s military expenditure increased by 2.8 per cent in real terms in 2010 to reach $698 billion. This increase, which was smaller than in recent years and substantially smaller than had been projected by the US Administration, was almost entirely due to an increase in spending on overseas contingency operations (OCO), in Afghanistan and Iraq.2 However, the Administration’s projections of future spending show a much larger increase in outlays in financial year (FY) 2011, particularly on operations and maintenance and procurement spending.3 This suggests that some of the spending planned for 2010 has been delayed until 2011.
